Prom Inspiration: Keri Hilson

18 Apr

Keri Hilson wore this turquoise dress with pretty accents to the 2011 Grammys, and it was one of my favorite looks on her to date. Because the dress makes its own statement, few accessories are needed.

Her makeup is very pretty, with a smoky eye and natural lip, and she’s paired the dress with a pair of strappy sandals and sparkly clutch. As always, we’ve scoured the web for frocks inspired by Miss Keri.

Please get into her. This is how you do a red carpet, FAB Ones.

Amber Riley is a FAB Girl favorite. She’s gotten seriously glamorous lately, and her hair and makeup are always on point. She’s awesome as Mercedes on Glee, but her best role is herself on the red carpet!

This photo is from The NAACP Image awards, where she showed up slimmed down and glammed up. Her hair, makeup and dress all get a stamp of approval for prom. Take the jump for gowns inspired by this young diva.

    6 Apr

    My new blogger BFF is Seree at http://www.awkwardcelebrity.com. She came to visit The Fab Girls yesterday with lots of lovely compliments about the blog and she also subscribed! (And you should, too!)

    Anyway, I was all up on her blog when I saw this delightful post/tutorial about makeup for glasses. My own little FAB Girl wears glasses and wants to make her eyes pop, and I figured other FAB Girls probably do, too. Hit the jump for the post Seree was kind enough to let me share with you!

    FAB Beauty: Natural Makeup Part 2

    4 Apr

    Our next FAB Beauty is Autumn, who is also wearing a beautiful natural makeup look. (Check out another one here.) I can’t think of any occasion this look isn’t right for, because again she is simply enhancing her features without the makeup taking over.

    Her complexion is on the darker end of the makeup spectrum, which can make finding the perfect foundation difficult due to a lack of range, but she has done it! Her skin looks absolutely flawless, and you can get this FAB look by checking out the products she used after the jump.(Plus more shots of our model!)
